Simple Pleasure ~ More Trying On

In addition to earlier posts about trying things on (like shoes and earrings), I noticed I have a lot of lip products ~ lip liners, lipsticks, lipglosses.

It's time to find out which ones I like, which ones look horrid... what to keep and what to toss.

I think, if I tried one lipstick and lipgloss per day, I'd have a hobby for a month.  And if I wanted to try all of the possible combinations of lipstick and lipgloss I can probably go for close to a year.

(I'll ignore the half-dozen or so lip liners for now.)

And if history is my guide, I'll like five, love two, and buy another dozen to try different shades.

  1. Do you find yourself matching lipstick to outfits? I've winnowed down my lipsticks to, well, a drawerful, of which 4 of the lipsticks and 3 of the glosses actually get used regularly. All the others match a particular top or dress, or are in reserve (my go-to for shopping/casual/dinner out is Max Factor Raisin, discontinued, but I have 1 in use and 5 sealed in reserve). It's still a sizable number.

    I suspect you'll enjoy this little project. Can you put lippy on barefaced and tell if it can work, or not? I can't. I have to have the hair, foundation, powder, and some mascara/liner at the least to be able to tell. If I bought it to match a top or dress, I'll have to put that on, too. Have fun.


My day is brighter when I hear from my friends!
